    I spent 3 years growing my soccer page goalhublive to nearly 450K. I woke up a week ago to an email saying you have been banned for violating terms and services.

    I never had issues with copywritten videos or content. I gave credit to those who's content I shared and never had issues in the community. BUT the night before the ban, I noticed a massive influx of followers around the 100's of thousands to my page and I just figured I was being shared all day through my groups and possible popular page hits. I now have settled on the idea that someone had sent those to my page and Instagram flagged me for the fake followers.

    My question is:
    Is this possible?
    Do people do this?
    How can I regain my account?
    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Please help

    very possible, must have pissed someone off or someone is trying to prove something. either way contact IG and see what you can do about getting your account back


    losing a 450k page must have hurt.

    Yes I think it was over 1-2 days before I was able to figure out what was going on. Instagram has yet to reply to me.

    Actually go to this link

    https://help.instagram.com/368191326593075

    report the account has being hacked, say someone else was using your account, and you will get your account back in less than 3 days.

    Wonder who you would have pissed off for that person to add 100k fake followers? Doesn't make sense
